Rawalpindi
A ‘Milad’ March was held here on Sunday under the auspices of Minhaj-ul-Quran Youth League (MYL) in connection with the birth anniversary of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him).
The march led by Tehreek Minhaj-ul-Quran Senior Vice General Secretary Sheikh Zahid Fayyaz and MYL Central President Babar Chaudhry started from Chandni Chowk and culminated at Committee Chowk. Thousands of people from all walks of life, including associates, workers and youth of Minhaj-ul-Quran from the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad and adjoining areas took part in the march. The participants of the march were chanting slogans and holding banners and placards inscribed with slogans such as: “We are lovers of our Holy Prophet,” “We are the servants of our Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him)” and “The month of happiness and blessings has arrived”.
In his telephonic address from Canada, the Chief Patron Minhaj-ul-Quran Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri greeted the MYL office-bearers, workers and people on the arrival of Rabi-ul-Awwal and urged them to work for peace in the society. “The birth anniversary of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (peace be upon him) is an occasion to demonstrate inter-religious unity and this continues to be the purpose behind the ‘Milad March’,” he said.
He said the message of Holy Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (peace be upon him) was love and peace and throughout his life he preached respect for others, brotherhood and reconciliation. He said that the country was passing through a critical time and under such circumstances there was an urgent need to follow the teachings of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him).
Stressing the need for avoiding confrontation, violence and disharmony, he said we should strive for unity. “The remedy of all problems and ills of today lies in following the teachings of Holy Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (peace be upon him),” Dr. Qadri added. He said without

a special love and reverence for the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) ones faith remains incomplete.
Speaking on the occasion, Sheikh Zahid said that his organization had also organized such kind of march in other cities including Lahore and Gujranwala which were participated by thousands of people. The President of MYL Babar Chaudhry while explaining the purpose of the march said all of us had gathered here today in order to show our love and respect for the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him). Besides others, Secretary General MYL Sanaullah Tahiri, Sohail Abbasi, Sheikh Iqbal, Ejaz Shah, Saeed Raja and Bilal Sheikh spoke on the occasion.
